Friends of Hillsborough County Animal Services
Like many awesome but neglected dogs, Teddy's luck could have easily run out. His first owner kept him outdoors before turning him over to the county shelter. Teddy tested positive for heartworm disease, a predictable diagnosis for dogs not given prevention in mosquito-rich Florida. But Friends of Hillsborough County Animal Services sponsored treatment for this happy hound-retriever mix. His foster family,which includes three dogs, two cats and an 11-year-old boy, can't say enough good things about gentle and jovial Teddy (ID No. 10601494). Adopt him neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and healthy by visiting friendsofhcas.org.
